Mechanical engineering

This book "Automobile Technology" presents a detailed treatment of modern automobile technology, including recent developments. This book is designed to cover the requirements for a complete course for undergraduate engineering students and also for the students pursuing diploma and degree in Automobile Engineering. However, in several places of the book contents extend beyond syllabus requirements in order to provide better foundation for subsequent studies. Recent trends in automobile technologies, including alternate-fuelled vehicles, alternate power plants for vehicles etc. are covered in sufficient details. A large number of review questions and solved numerical examples have been provided at appropriate places in the text. These examples have been taken mostly from the various examination papers. The mathematical treatment in the book is in SI units. It is assumed that the reader of this book has the knowledge of elementary applied mechanics and thermodynamics. However, sufficient introductory material for electrical and electronics has been included to understand the functioning of electrical and electronic systems used in automobiles.
